Written by: / / No Comments

If you’re not already an Xbox LIVE Gold subscriber, then you’ll have the chance to test out Microsoft’s online service this weekend. That’s right folks, there’s a free Xbox LIVE Gold weekend coming up, but only if you live in certain regions, and unfortunately Europe isn’t on the list.

Xbox LIVE Gold will be unlocked until Sunday December 2nd in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Republic of Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan and the United States.

If you live in one of these regions then you’ll have access to online multiplayer, Internet Explorer, Video Kinect and entertainment apps during this time period.

Speaking about why Europe was excluded this time round, Major Nelson said “there was a UK only weekend recently, while the US did not have that one. We alternate what regions are unlocked on a varied basis. It all equalizes out in the end.”
